2010 Annual General Meeting

Hi everyone,

Concerned Citizens of Quarry Lands Development will hold its 2010 Annual General Meeting on Wed. Jan. 20 at Birchcliff Bluffs United Church, 33 East Road (Warden and Kingston Rd.), starting at 7:30.

As you know, a great deal has happened regarding the Quarry lands site over the past year. Beginning last January, members of the CCQLD executive took part in information sharing sessions with the City, Gerrard Clonmore Developments and Build Toronto, for the purpose of exploring alternative visions for the Quarry lands site. These discussions have been extremely beneficial in allowing us to express the reasons behind community opposition to GCD's proposed development. The information sharing has also helped us gain an even deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities associated with potential development on different areas of the entire 49-acre Quarry lands site.  We expect 2010 to be similarly eventful on a number of fronts, including a scheduled Ontario Municipal Board hearing in February and the potential for more multi-party discussions.

Our Annual General Meeting is a key opportunity for the CCQLD board to provide an update on our activities and take feedback and direction from the membership. It's also a time for membership renewals, for new members to join our organization, and for the annual election of the Board of Directors.

Councilor Brian Ashton will be at the meeting to provide his thoughts and answer questions. Brian has been deeply involved in this issue over the past seven years and has been a strong advocate for our community's interests.

Please feel free to pass this on to neighbours, and we look forward to seeing everyone on Jan. 20.  All the best for a safe and happy New Year.

Mark Brender
President, CCQLD
